The Small Business Administration exempts small businesses from over $100 billion worth of federal contracts and the GSA exempts small businesses from eligibility for over $40 billion worth of federal contracts each year.
The SBA has a policy of excluding small
businesses from eligibility for $100 billion worth of federal contracts
from the acquisitions budget, which violates the congressional intent of
the Small Business Act, which clearly states that small businesses must
receive 23 percent of 'total federal prime contracts'.
regulators exempt GSA Schedule contracts from small business set-aside,
despite congressional mandate in the Small Business Act, which states
that all federal acquisitions in the simplified acquisition threshold
(contracts valued between $3,000 and $150,000) must be set-aside for
small businesses. The SBA and FAR council essentially repealed this
valuable piece of legislation by exempting all acquisitions on the GSA
schedule from small business set-asides.
